potassium iodide solution.    Effervescence occurs  and  a  dark
coloured liquid separates out.    This is iodobenzene.
C0HGN,S04H + KI = C0H6I + N2 + KHSO4.
5.    Dissolve the substance in water and warm gently.    Effer-
vescence occurs and a dark coloured oil separates, which has the
smell of phenol.    When effervescence ceases, cool and shake
up with a little ether.    Decant the ether into a dry test-tube.
Evaporate the ether and test the residue for phenol, see p. 179.
Cyif.NoSOJi + FLO = C0H5OH + H2SO4 + N2.
6.    Dissolve the substance  in cold water and add it to a
solution of phenol in caustic soda, drop by drop.    An orange
crystalline precipitate of hydroxyazobenzene is formed.    Repeat,
using /3-naphthol in place of phenol.    A scarlet precipitate is
obtained.

-f 2NaOH                                          + 2H20.
7.    Dissolve in cold water and add a few drops of aniline,
and shake up.    Diazoaminobenzene separates out as a yello\v
crystalline precipitate.
C(iH5N,S04H + C0HSNH3 = C0HfiN:N.NHC0H5 + H2SO4.
8.    Heat o'5 gram of the dry substance on an iron tray.    It
decomposes with slight explosion.
Any of the diazo-compound which remains over should be
dissolved in water and poured away.    See Appendix^ p. 282.
